Lisa Ledford at Duncan Regional Hospital asks, Would you be willing to share your δ-check values for PT/INR, PTT, fibrinogen, and D-dimer?
Hi, Lisa, I checked with Warren Varden at UAB, who confirmed that we don’t use delta checks. Our special coagulation staff carefully review results and communicate with our inpatient and outpatient units. They are able to discern when there is a change in therapy or a faulty specimen collection. However, some of our participants may provide us with their δ-check systems. Please respond here.
